Yeovil Town go shirtless for team photo
8:45am Tuesday 7th August 2012 in Sport
YEOVIL Town went to an extreme measure yesterday to highlight the fact that the club is still looking for a main sponsor for the 2012-13 season.
The club held its annual pre-season photocall – but this was with a difference when the players turned out for the official team photograph wearing no shirts at all.
Yeovil manager Gary Johnson told the BBC: “If we haven’t got a sponsor at the moment then you can’t wear the shirt.”
And he added: “It's a little bit tongue-in-cheek of course; it's not serious.”
Thankfully, and no criticism of Johnson’s physique, he and the rest of the management team kept their shirts on for the photocall.
Any business interested in becoming the club’s main sponsor – please contact Yeovil’s commercial manager Dave Linney on 01935-847872 or email him at email@example.com .
